John Freeman... "It's In The Blood"

“In racing you are only as good as your last best horse.”
- John Freeman

John Freeman’s passion for the Thoroughbred lies in his selection of yearlings at sales, always in search of future sire material. His favourite field remains the syndication and management of stallions. As a selector and buyer of yearlings, his main aim has always been to buy champions and this steady pursuit of excellence has connected him with many of South Africa’s leading sires, including Dynasty.

We were thrilled to have John as a guest to Backworth this weekend past. He was here not only to see the stud, but also to inspect our foals and yearlings. If his reactions were anything to go by… we’d reckon he was impressed!

Bon Voyage to our Ladies!!

Backworth Mares depart for the Cape / Ian Todd (p)

Spring is always an exciting, yet anxious, time for any Stud Farm as the results of years of intricately calculated planning and breeding come to fruition with the arrival of the past season’s foals and the selection of the next season’s Stallions.

This year is a particularly anxious, yet exciting, time for the Backworth team as we bid farewell to a few members of our broodmare band as they embark on their journey to the fairest Cape… and to some impressive Stallion talent too!
